Rudd Estate was founded in 1996 by Leslie Rudd and has become one of Napa Valley's most exciting wineries. This multi-generational operation produces wine in extremely small batches, operating from a site characterized by iconic red volcanic soils. This limited production ensures that the Rudd Estate team can provide complete attention to detail in every bottle.
Although red Bordeaux varietals (Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot) are a key focus for the Rudd Estate team, some white grapes are also grown – a rarity in the Oakville area. Many of Rudd Estate's vineyard sites are located across the slopes of Mt. Veeder; this high elevation means they have a refined freshness and elegance not generally associated with the rich, bold wines of Napa Valley.
Samantha Rudd took over the reins of the estate in 2018. She has implemented organic and biodynamic practices across the Rudd Estate winery as a champion. Many of the vineyards are now being farmed with these principles in mind. Innovation is a driving force for Samantha; in 2016, she also introduced the Unlikely Collaborators Residency Programme to Rudd Estate, encouraging individuals with backgrounds in the arts, science, or business to volunteer to collaborate with them.
